Came to visit at the sakura best viewing. Very beautiful. The hill is full of sakura. Take a bus to the mid hill, walk downhill is easy while enjoying the scenery. A good day trip, worth the visit.

Sadly there was only a hint of autumn colours & the clouds were heavy so thick mist. But it only added to the atmosphere. Walking was easy along a narrow empty road. It was so quiet we thought we were lost. So we were very...More
